Thank goodness Mercy’s boyfriend was late meeting her Tuesday evening. That gave us a chance to chat and shoot. I asked about her lovely dress which she said bought from River Island. Since River Island is a UK company I correctly guessed she’s from England (incidentally she didn’t have an English accent). My second correct guess came after observing how she walked. Her confident, composed stride told me she was a runway model. Later that evening I visited her website and let me tell ya… The girl has skills! Hair, make-up, sultry poses and amazing outfits. We exchanged contact information with the hopes we would shoot again before her return trip home. She only had a few days to visit family so the odds of a follow-up shoot are slim. However, my fingers are crossed!
Several of these images were featured in the Community section of the Asian Pacific Post newspaper.
